AcoustiChannel metal furring channels are used with our AcoustiClips. These form the base for wall and ceiling soundproofing systems that reduce significant airborne sounds and vibration levels. The AcoustiChannel is one of the main components within our soundproofing systems for walls and ceilings.
The AcoustiChannel metal furring channels comprise vibration-absorbing steel. It creates a low-profile acoustic hanger that will enhance the acoustic performance of separating walls and ceilings.
Attach the AcoustiChannel and Acousticlips to timber studs, ceiling joists and directly onto concrete ceilings or solid masonry walls for superior levels of noise control.
- Size 78mm wide x 26mm deep x 1800mm long
- Weight approx. 0.47kg/lm
- Composition galvanised steel to BS EN 10346:209
Fitting the AcoustiClip and AcoustiChannel to Walls and Ceilings
Screw AcoustiClips onto stud frames, ceiling joists or directly into solid walls and concrete ceilings.
- AcoustiClips are either fixed before inserting the metal channel or slid onto the AcoustiChannel before fixing to the wall or ceiling
- Pinch the bridge of the AcoustiChannel at the end and slide into position
- Screw AcoustiClips in place using suitable screws through the circular inserts at either end of the clip
- Join the AcoustiChannel by overlapping them to 100mm and screw together
- Apply soundproof boarding into the AcoustiChannel using suitable self-drilling screws that are at least 10mm deeper than the boarding you are using
Walls – Isolate the soundproof boarding with an isolation strip along the floor. Install a clip at the end of each run of AcoustiChannel.
Ceilings – Ensure the AcoustiClips are installed within 150mm of the ceiling perimeter at the end of the bar length. The first row and the last row should be within a maximum of 150mm from the wall.
